For Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), student teams must develop and present solutions to real-world challenges. In this video from Making Learning Real, IT students use PBCL processes and tools to explore a business problem and put forth possible solutions. The instructor serves as a facilitator, supporting students as they create networking plans for a new retail store. While solving this problem, students also develop their teamwork skills.
In Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), students develop solutions to real-world problems by following a defined process.
The instructor identifies and presents a real business problem to students. The students then work in teams to define and analyze the problem. They research options, identify challenges, and develop a solution to present to the instructor.
The instructor acts as a facilitator, overseeing but not interfering with the students’ inquiry processes. This forces students to rely more on teamwork, giving them a real-world professional experience.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
